The IET GenRad 1404 series Primary Standard Capacitors are the standard choice in metrology laboratories, and are still used today by NMIs around the world.
These capacitors have been designed as primary reference standards of capacitance with which working standards can be compared. IET’s 1620A and 1621 Precision Capacitance Measuring Systems are particularly well suited for this purpose and can be conveniently used to accurately calibrate a wide range of working standards in terms of a 1404 Reference Standard Capacitor.
IET has expanded on the GenRad 1404 Series with the New 1404-5nF and 1404-10nF Standard Capacitors. These build on the outstanding time tested performance and stability features of the classical design of the original GenRad 1404’s. Model 1404-A 10 nF and 1404-C 10 pF
In combination with an accurately known external resistor, this capacitor also becomes a standard of dissipation factor.
All critical parts of the plate assembly are made of invar for stability and low temperature coefficient. After heat cycling and adjustment the assembly is mounted in a heavy brass container, which after evacuation, is filled with dry nitrogen under pressure slightly above atmospheric and sealed. The container is mounted on an aluminum panel and protected by an outer aluminum case. Each capacitor is subjected to a series of temperature cycles to determine hysteresis and temperature coefficients and to stabilize the capacitance.
Two locking bnc coaxial connectors are used as terminals (other connectors such as 874 type are available as options). The outer shell of one is connected to the case, but the outer shell of the other is left unconnected to permit the capacitor to be used with an external resistor as a dissipation factor standard.

"The ABB Power Grids Jumet organisation is an innovative development and production facility of ABB that manufactures active filters and battery energy storage systems to support a stable grid. To test these systems we have acquired two Cinergia GE/EL +120kVA eplus units capable of doing grid emulation (AC + DC), operating as an electronic load (AC +DC) and being a battery emulator. We have experienced very good support from TTMS in obtaining these two Cinergia units. This included organising an on-site demonstration and supplying loan systems prior to the delivery of our final systems. This way we could start testing as early as possible. TTMS also organised training for the operators from the original manufacturer. This support allowed us to introduce the first battery energy storage systems even prior to the full delivery of the Cinergia systems."

“At the Energy and Environment department of the Faculty of Science, Technology and Medicine (FSTM) of the University of Luxembourg we do have different research projects related to green energy contributing to the development of eco-cities. As a long-standing partner of our research unit, TT&MS has proven that they are able to answer even the most complex questions in a professional manner. They have shown that they are always up to date with the latest technology and do not spare any effort to look at the application and even the situation on site. The exchange of ideas was always very pleasant and took place quickly. We look forward to further years of fruitful cooperation.”
